Characterization of LEF1 High Expression and Novel Mutations in Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Aberrant activation of the Wnt pathway plays a pathogenetic role in tumors and has been associated with adverse outcome in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Lymphoid enhancer binding factor 1 (LEF1), a key mediator of Wnt signaling, has been linked to leukemic transformation, and LEF1 mutations have been identified in T-ALL. Here we found LEF1 is highly expressed in 25.0% adult...

Arrhythmogenic Biophysical Phenotype for SCN5A Mutation S1787N Depends upon Splice Variant Background and Intracellular Acidosis

Background SCN5A is a susceptibility gene for type 3 long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, and sudden infant death syndrome. INa dysfunction from mutated SCN5A can depend upon the splice variant background in which it is expressed and also upon environmental factors such as acidosis. S1787N was reported previously as a LQT3-associated mutation and has also been observed in 1 of 295...


Ikaros, a DNA-binding protein also known as Ikaros family zinc finger protein 1 (IKZF1), was initially shown to function critically in hematopoietic differentiation. Deletion or mutation of Ikaros has been associated with lymphoblastic, as well as acute and chronic myelogenous leukemias demonstrating that Ikaros can act as a tumor suppressor. Ikaros is predominantly expressed in...
